Deal elemental and gun damage while doing an SUPERARCHIMEGAULTRASUPERDUPER EXTREME abuse of healthgating. This build is mostly for tanking, crowd controlling and survivality. Oh, also for COOKING PSYCHOS, SKAGS AND BANDITS.
I can’t answer if this build is good for raiding since I’m quite bad at OP8 raids.
2. The Build (Lv72 + OP8 cyco)
Pointing two particular skills:
-Embrace the Pain: 10/5. Higher fire rate, best healing from Elemental Empathy.
-Flame Flare: 6/5. It is a PITA to be relighting the grill every 5 minutes when we want to do a BBQ. THIS IS LIKE ADDING GASOLINE, DIESEL, PAINT THINNER, LIGHTER FLUID, FLOOR WAX, PEPPER AND SALT TO THE GRILL AND LIGHTING IT WITH A FLAMETHROWER.
Two points remaining: put them wherever you want. I put it into Strip the Flesh because I want some explosive touch to the barbecue.
3. The Stuff
Slot 1: Maliwan Hellfire. Consummate prefix [more damage].
This is one of the important parts of the build since this baby with the build I have shown below can do nice stuff. And yeah, I have tried the build with OP8 whites and works fine. A blue, purple or e-tech SMG will do the job well.
Slot 2: Tediore Omen. Any prefix or element (New and Improved or Gentle prefixes are good).
Sometimes, the Hellfire gets surpassed by some enemy damage resistance (YES, I’M TALKING TO YOU BADASSES AND RABIDS) so this shotty can do it pretty well. Oh, and of course, the Blockhead, the Conference Call, the Butcher, the Interfacer or any similar shotgun can also do the job. The element can be changed for a corrosive for loaders and hardened cycos…
Slot 3: Any weapon you want.
Fire does not kill all enemies. So this slot gets reserved for any weapon you want to use in certain situations. Here can go a Twister, a Pimp, a Slagga… It’s up to you.
Slot 4: Second wind weapon. A rocket launcher, a Carnage, a Harold, a Nukem, a Badaboom, anything. I use a Norfleet.
COM slot: Legendary Torch. Here we get the Embrace the Pain and Fire Fiend bonuses, as Elemental Empathy, Fuel the Fire and BBB bonuses. Plus enhances the fire rate even more.
Shield slot: The Rough Rider. We need to move move from the Flame of the Firehawk, for real. Plus, gives damage resistance and more health.
Grenade: Magic Missile, Quasar or Stormfront.
I prefer to slag via grenades yet each one has its way to do it. The Stormfront does a nice bunch of healing as Quasar does (and the last one pulls the enemies to a point, can be damn good useful)
Relic: any relic you want. I use a stockpile one. A Bone or an elemental relic are quite useful for this build. Yet health ones are also welcome.
